this front right here, it is a big one and it is a warm front separating the colder air to the north and the warmer air where we are. that's the boundary. and we will see more moisture riding along it. so i think tomorrow we will have a lot of cloud cover first of all. i do think we are going to develop a little light rain. still have a 21 mile an hour wind in mansfield. brosy at times to -- breezy at times and as we look at the future view temperatures from 2:00 to 5:00 a.m., still around 50 and the average low is 32 for this time of year. you are not going to have to bundle up much. 52 the low. cloudy skies and still a little breezy. the winds will pick up again tomorrow. the first alert day, and this is is going to be just for light rain. a 10th of an inch are on less. this will not be the heavy rain threat. that will be on thursday with the cold front. you can see on future view here it is keeping us dry in the morning and it may have a
11:20 pm
little light rain around. the first batch looks like it is north of us. by tomorrow evening we develop light rain. with that front lolligag nie em to the -- locally gagging around, 55 is the high tomorrow. and you could have a little light rain in akron-canton as well and 54. so perhaps the umbrella, take it just in case here for the light rain potential. as a result of the cloud cover i did keep the temperature down. 53 at lunch. cloudy sky at 5:00 and 55. now tomorrow night mainly dry morning. and this is at 8:00 a.m. on thursday. this is going to be the heavier rain threat. we will have waves of rain and thunder on thursday. here is 2:00 in the afternoon and 5:00. this clearly could give us a lot more rain and then we have a temperature change going on
